Los Angeles-based Artists David Connelly & Zoey Taylor, collectively known as Dosshaus, are known for their 3D creations made out of nothing but paint, glue and cardboard. They have created their world from cardboard, including a replica of an early Mini Cooper.
According to the artists, they “build the world we want to live in.” They have crafted entire room interiors, and extraordinarily detailed objects such as a clock repair shop, a photography studio, a film editing room, musical instruments, an aricraft hangar, and now they have even created their own 3D sculpture of a life size original 1960’s Mini. The cardboard creation has a very lifelike appearance despite its obviously hand painted and flat cardboard panels. They really managed to capture the character and personality of the old classic Minis, which, as with most British vehicles, is where the appeal really lies.
The duo's cardboard creations are all made by hand with cardboard mostly sourced from the alleys of Los Angeles.
The artists photographed the Mini out on the streets of Los Angeles, during one of the art opening nights on Chinatown’s Chung King Road. The cardboard car was also on display for the New Utopia design build Juxtapoz magazine LA art show after party on January 30th, 2016.
For those interested in checking out more of Dosshuas’ work, they will be doing a residency at Gregorio Escalante Gallery in Los Angeles from February 10th -21st.
